. >>> good morning, everyone. i'm john berman. >> i'm christine romans. soledad has the day off today. our "starting point," two rockets land in israel during president obama's historic trip there. we're live in the west bank as the president is moechlts away now from a live news conference with palestinian president mahmoud abbas. we will bring that to you live. >>> manhunt happening for the person who gunned down the head of colorado's prison systems. police in desperate search for a car and a witness who may have some answers. >>> more rattling from north korea last night wit the threat that u.s. bases are within, quote, striking distance of their country. >>> and the heat just on fire. down by double digits late in the game. they rally to keep the winning streak alive. 24 games and counting. will it ever stop? >> wow! good morning. it's thursday, march 21st. "starting point" begins right now. >>> good morning again. our "starting point," president obama in the west bank with face-t face-t face-to-face with world leaders. the press conference is scheduled to start in a few minutes from
u.s.- israeli relations that were badly strained and president obama's first term? >> yeah, john, and you're right, it's an israeli-u.s. reset, and i think it was a great success. i think the president's speech was outstanding to the young israelis. i think it was full of realism and idealism. what he has done, he has walked away from the idea that israel has to stop building settlements, and as a reality there's not going to be any palestinian state as long as you have the president meeting with netanyahu, lieberman, and those folks in power, but i do think there's been a reset in relations with israel. but john with the whole middle east, look at muslim brotherhood in egypt, hamas, gaza, the jordanian king is in trouble, syria is about to collapse in anarchy. you've got hezbollah in lebanon. i think that whole area is moving the other direction. if i were the president of the united states, i believe what he wants to do and ought to do is get out of dodge. >> eleanor. >> i can't remember a time in my lifetime when there was a peaceful status quo in the middle east. it's always
, just hours before governor john hickenlooper signed new gun control legislation. we'll be taking all of that in a few minutes. >>> plus, something special tonight. we conduct an informal account of u.s. senators asking whether or not they would have supported dianne feinstein's proposed ban on assault weapons. the numbers are not official and in some cases the answer wasn't quite as simple as a yes or no but we will give you those results in a few moments. i now want to turn to my panel of police chiefs in newtown, and the surrounding area, chief michael kehe, chief douglas fuchs, chief joseph gaudett, chief montgomery of brookfield, patrick ridenhour of stratford. first i'll read the names of the 35 senators who so far have told us that they oppose senator feinstein's assault weapons bill. it's important to know who they are. senators alexander, ayotte, baucus, begich, boozman, burr, coburn, cochran, crapo, cruz, donnelly, enzi, flake, graham, grassley, hatch, heitkamp, hoeven, inhofe, isakson, johanns, johnson, king, lee, manchin, lee, mccain, risch, roberts, rubio, shelby, wicker.
's schedule, though, as you just saw. he has arrived in ramallah in the west bank. john king is helping cover this trip. he is in jerusalem right now. good morning, john. >> reporter: good morning, john. this is a very important visit by the president. you heard when he was in israel yesterday, president netanyahu saying sure, i'll go back to the bargaining table. he urged the palestinians to come back with no preconditions. one of the preconditions of the palestinians was that mr. netanyahu stop construction in the west bank. interesting moment. those in israel believe president netanyahu has to say that but that he doesn't see an opportunity for peace. president abbas has said he wants to come back to the bargaining table but can he deliver the palestinians? those rockets fired just this morning from the palestinian territory of gaza, controlled by hamas, of course. a reminder that mr. abbas speaks for the palestinian authority in the west bank but does not necessarily speak for the palestinians in gaza. president obama trying to navigate a very difficult challenge. he would like to get the
there waiting to be paid out to people who may not realize they have it coming. nbc's john yang has more on why and how you can tell if you're among them. >> reporter: andy and chris fox got a letter about a year ago that shocked them. >> it was five years after my father had passed. we had no knowledge of any insurance policies whatsoever. >> reporter: the letter was from an insurance company. they would learn that chris' father had three separate life insurance policies worth nearly $50,000 and never told his family. to recover their money, the foxes embarked on what would become a journey. there were weeks of phone calls with insurance companies and state insurance officials. >> i worked for uncle sam, the united states navy, as a civilian for 38 years. i know what it is to deal with a bureaucracy. >> reporter: in the end they collected $48,000. it took them eight months. the foxes' experience is not unique. according to a recent study there's a one in 600 chance you're owed money from a life insurance policy and don't even know it. that's better odds than winning $100 on a powerball ticket.
a matter of perception? we're going to see here in the coming months whether he sends john kerry back with a really serious mission to do something between the israelis and palestinians and what does he follow up on with respect to turkey, syria, etc. the >> well, it looks like he's going to go back fairly early. and one thing interesting is secretary of state clinton kept her distance from the israeli-palestinian issue. i think you will see secretary kerry in the middle of this. clinton may have been thinking about the pobbletd of running for president someday, john kerry has been there, done that. and heard in that clip where prime minister netanyahu said the iranians would not move unless there was a credible threat of military action, and you heard the president come out very clearly saying containment is not my policy, they're not going to get a weapon no matter what we need to go do. and i think even though he's said that before, they needed to hear it right there and the iranians needed to hear it right there. >> while he was over there, there were some pretty horrific accusati
. that might be the most scary. >> speaking of technology. we told you that john muller joined twitter. >> i did. in less than 24 hours i have 449 followers. pretty cool. if you want to follow me i'm @johnmullertv. i will tweet again. >> he will tweet again. >> i'm slowly getting up to speed. >> some one said the competition between you and i begins. who will get more followers? >> give me a few weeks. >> we'll be right back. followers? >> give me a few weeks. >> we'll be right back. but it doesn't cover everything. only about 80% of your part b medical expenses. the rest is up to you. so consider an aarp medicare supplement insurance plan, insured by unitedhealthcare insurance company. like all standardized medicare supplement plans they pick up some of what medicare doesn't pay. and save you up to thousands of dollars in out-of-pocket costs. call today to request a free decision guide to help you better understand what medicare is all about. and which aarp medicare supplement plan works best for you. with these types of plans, you'll be able to visit any doctor or hospital that
from john king in jerusalem and ivan watson in jordan. >> let's start with those accusations of chemical warfare in syria yet to be verified. what does that mean for the u.s. involvement in this conflict? ivan watson, you're following the story from nearby amman. tell us what you're hearing about even what happened? >> conflicting reports and most of the information is coming from the syrian government which first made the accusation on tuesday accusing rebels of carrying out some kind of chemical weapons attack in a government-controlled town to the west of aleppo that killed at least 25 people and wounded scores of people. the rebels were very quick to deny that charge. and in turn accuse the government of misfiring one of its own chemical weapons at that town. so we really don't know one way or the other some chemical weapons experts, michael, have said from the evidence we've seen on syrian state tv, it's not enough to really conclusively make the case that any chemical weapons were used. take a listen to what the u.s. ambassador to syria, robert ford, said to cnn. he say
polarization around this. >> and also a seminnother impor moment. john berman turned another year older. zoraida has the cakes. >> i took my mike off and i need to use yours. let me tell you, we got you this cake and i went to the back and had you two additional cakes. you are a very popular man. happy birthday. no candles. but you can pretend and make a wish. >> the different cakes, because the staff can't agree on what they like. >> velvet, oreo, and chocolate fudge. >> we have to pause so i can eat this. now to newsroom with carol cosstello, pretty please. >> happy birthday! >> thank you. >>> happening now in the newsroom, breaking overnight. rockets fired just miles from president obama in israel. >>> also, shut down in chicago. >> i think it's a bit ridiculous. >> if you take them out of where they live, what does that say to the child? >> an unprecedented move to close 50 elementary schools. critics say it targets minorities and the poor. >>> plus dow watch. records being shattered every day. should you give your 401(k) a fresh look? >>> plus, late night shakeup. >> before we get
i'll call for steve or or john from el paso county sheriff's office. >> inspect john st. augustine with the el paso county sheriff's office. i want to first begin by -- >> all right. you're listening to a press conference there in texas as authorities are talking about how they are cooperating in texas with colorado authorities as they try to look into these two separate shooting incidents and trying to determine whether indeed there is a link between the person, the suspect who was -- who died who was shot and killed there in texas and if there's a link between that person and the corrections chief that was shot right outside his home in colorado springs. let's go to jim spellman once again joining us there in colorado springs. again, jim, give us an idea of where authorities are going from here as they try to draw a connection between these two situations. >> first thing they want to do is see if they can link any evidence found at the crime scene of the tom clements murder here in colorado with that car. i asked does that mean shell ka casings, fingerprints, but they wopt tell m
between the israelis and palestinians can be restarted. with the new secretary of state john kerry along on this trip, some in the administration hope a new spirit of collaboration can be established. there's also a new coalition government in israel, one that remains fractured when it comes to the establishment of a palestinian state. it is no secret that prime minister benjamin netanyahu and president barack obama have not always seen eye-to-eye on the best road to peace and that's just the beginning for president obama on this historic trip. he has to deal with nuclear threats from iran and provide a road map for how far the united states will go in defense of israel. we will get insights to all of these challenges for president obama with the former ambassador to israel, martin indyk who joins us from washington where he is the vice president and director for foreign policy at the brookings institution. ambassador indyk, good to have you back on the program, sir. >> thanks, tavis, good to be with you. tavis: i gues
of the show we asked you why are you awake? john tower, the answers, please? >> we have dawn. bill, glad to see you at the "way too early" high table. tyson writes, is barnicle supposed to be sitting next to you? he isn't doing anything. >> you see, tyson, grandpa barnicle wanders before "morning joe." we never know where he is going to end up. thank goodness this time he was fully dressed. we'll see you tomorrow. "morning joe" starts right now. >> what went wrong? why are we further away from a two-state solution? i'm curious. what do you believe went wrong? did you push israel too hard? mr. prime minister, i want to help out my colleague over here. do you accept the president's understanding that iran is a year away when it comes to nuclear weapons? another question i had for you -- >> chuck, how many do you got? do you guys do this in the israel press? you say you get one question and you add like five? you see how the young lady from channel 1, she had one question. >> these are commuter questions. reiterations. >> i thought i had five. i get four questions, right? >> look. this is n
, not to mention israeli-palestinian conflict. john king is there. >> reporter: the bullets are real. complacency the enemy at the security training kacademy. >> we have enemies motivated on us to do attacks in the cities, settlements, wherever there are jews. we're not waiting for the suicide bomber to come. we want to be prepared. >> reporter: expect the unexpected is what gat, a colonel in the israeli reserves, teaches students like these men training to protect jerusalem's light rail service. yet, he has zero expectations president obama's visit will make any difference at this time of increasingle israeli-palestinian tension. >> i remember my mother said when i was a child, i hope you don't are to go through the army. i told her always, since i was a child, i don't think that will be true. and me, i'm not telling that to my kids. i'm telling them, listen, guys, these are the facts, if you live in israel, you'll probably have to go to the army. >> reporter: low expectations done mean there aren't enormous stakes. >> he does not want to be the american president on whose watch iran either gets
weapons, john, many of them will just say, we're getting killed as it is. day to day, more than 70,000 people killed in the last two years, i don't care whether it's bullets or bombs or air strikes or chemical weapons that kill us, something is killing us day after day and it needs to stop. >> a dire situation no matter how you slice it. ivan watson our thanks to you. >> of course the movement of chemical weapons is one of the red lines for this white house and what they're watching so closely after u.s. engagement. the white house pentagon officials closely monitoring these developments. president obama's chief of staff dennis mcdonough told jake tapper they take the use of chemical weapons, quote, very seriously. >> we are going to be very clear to the syrian regime, as we have been throughout, and to all the syrian supporters throughout the world, and then obviously to our partners in the region, that if this is substantiated obviously it does suggest that the president's just said that this is a game changer and we'll act accordingly. >> game changer. so does that mean the unit
sunday. sfau state john kerry is in iraq today. it is an unannounced visit. the purpose of his trip, wouldfold. secretary kerry urging them to work together. overcoming the violence that continued to divide that country. and asking the prime minister to stop iran from flying over iraqi air space. iran is believed to have been shuttling military personnel and equipment to the syrian government over the air space of iraq which is, of course, supporting that horrible civil war in syria and that is something iran and iraq have both denied. good morning, everyone. welcome. >> great to have you here. last year, the iraqi government promised former secretary of state hillary clinton to inspect all of iranian flights so far that's reportedly not happening. now secretary kerry's turn to get it done. >> good morning. wink, wink, nudge, nhung from the iraqis to the iranians. the revolutionary guard soldiers to head from iran into syria to help assad. the united states has only pressured the iraqis privilege atly up until now. the fact they are doing so publicly and sharing intelligence means t
breakout. john berman has that. >> this is nuts. canadian police arrested two inmates who used a hijacked helicopter to pull off a daring prison escape. police say the inmates 36-year-old benjamin hudon-barbeau and 33-year-old danny provencal climbed a ladder dangling from the chopper. they were whisked away from this maximum security facility outside montreal. the first inmate and two unidentified suspects were apprehended really quickly. the second inmate surrendered peacefully overnight. so it's weird but over. >>> a vigil on the campus of seton hill university near pittsburgh after a deadly bus crash. the woman's lacrosse team bus skidded off the pennsylvania turnpike saturday, smashed into a tree. the bus driver and the coach of the lacrosse team who was six months pregnant were killed. there was some rain, there was some snow on the road but police have not released an official cause of the crash. >>> in a very public display of republican soul searching, the rnc is set to release an internal review of the 2012 election, what many people are calling an autopsy report. it includes so
would argue that's one of the many reasons that we're stuck. >> rose: okay. john kerry is the new secretary of state. cares about the middle east? interested. has been as chairman of the foreign relations committee. has many contacts in the region, many trips in the region, its unlikely he would appoint an envoy. he wants to do it himself i would assume. does that make a difference? >> it seems to be the case. it's the secretary of state, he has a certain gravitas. but ultimately you're going to have to have a president who is committed to this issue and i'm not convinced that president obama see this is other as a loser issue for him at this point. >> rose: so finally, aaron, when they come back you don't think we'll have a greater understanding between the two leaders? >> i think you will. and particularly i think on iran. i think netanyahu will continue to give the president the time and space he needs on the israeli/palestinian thing. i don't know, charlie. i really think that this is a tough one and with all due respect to secretary kerry, i wish him well but barack obama is
." for the latest, let's go to nbc's kristen welker live for us at the white house. senators lindsey graham and john mccain have just issued a statement warning that if the use of chemical weapons is verified, then the united states must take immediate action. i have to ask you, kristen, how is the white house responding to these disturbing reports out of syria? >> reporter: well, they are quite concerned about the reports out of syria, martin, and i have to tell you, there are still a lot of question marks. the white house making the point that they are looking into the allegations that chemical weapons were used in syria. as you pointed out, the government is pointing fingers at the rebel forces. the rebel forces are pointing fingers at the government. you notice the language that jay carney used today was quite different in terms of referring to the rebel forces. saying at this point in time there is no credible evidence to suggest that they used chemical weapons. they are taking these reports very seriously, though, and trying to determine if this was, in fact, the case. now, of course, presiden
. let's go straight to cnn's john king. he's on the scene traveling with the president in jerusalem. they're investigating but there is no firm evidence yet that the syrians have used chemical weapons. >> that was the fascinating exchange when the issue came up, wolf. you know well all the intelligence assets that are here. israel, the neighbor to the northeast is syria. they've been helping the united states. there are satellite images. there are drones flying over syria from israel and other places in the region. and there are different ways they can test if chemical weapons were used. sensors they put in the air to test. so there is no question there is an intelligence investigation under way. so the president made clear again that would be a game changer but he said he is waiting for the facts. he didn't say what he would do, if there is conclusive evidence he wasn't clear. it would be a game changer but what next? white house officials say that is one reason they're going to be very, very careful, gather the facts, so they can talk about what the president would do if this work
supporting corporate welfare. and then the next day john boehner says, uh-uh. we are not going to close those loopholes on oil companies or hedge fund managers or people who park their profits overseas. we are going to give them all of the corporate welfare that will we can. i have to tell you. i think it's a good report. i don't think the republican party is going to pay any attention to it. and i think unless the republican party changes, i think we could see the republican party out of the running and a third party taking over and the republican party being in the dust bin of history mark my words, they pay attention to this romped, they change their policies, not just their delivery or they go in the dust bin of history. that's my take away from this g.o.p. report. do you think they will change? 866-55-press. do you think they are big enough to change? do you think they realize how out of touch they are with american people? give us a call. let's talk about it. >> this is "the bill press show." [ music ] >> i'm a slutty bob hope. >> you are. >> the troops
: ford's boss, secretary of state john kerry met with the russian foreign minister to press the kremlin to cease delivery of weapons systems but the ongoing conversation has not led moscow to change. the option of the u.s. arming syrian rebels remains under discussion. one other interesting note, influential republican congresswoman, layton, of florida says we can't guarantee the weapons wouldn't fall into the hand of extremists. >> on wall street, our 401(k)'s are having a nice time. we're up 57 on the session thus far. above 14,500. traders reacting to the word the federal reserve will take more steps to boost the economy through the program of buying up $85 billion in treasury and mortgage bonds. but the trouble in cyprus could threaten markets. officials are trying to find a new way to keep their own economy afloat after the parliament rejected a bailout that would have taxed its own citizens' bank accounts. the banks are closed the rest of the week. >>> where are we with this situation? >> in a standstill when it comes to cyprus. the parliament is betting the european union and cen
, again, particularly these democratic senators are up for re-election. john boehner has basically said in the house, you know, we're going to sit back and watch and see what comes out of the senate. so it is a very, you know, bad use of a word, but sort of a targeted issue here. you know, i just am not entirely sure that mayor bloomberg's money is going to have the kind of impact in those areas it would have to have. >> i want to bring in congressman charles rangel. always good to have you on the program. good morning. >> good to be back. good morning. >> you're a proponent of many of these new laws. what happened to people in your corner? i mean, things seemed so promising after newtown and now the senate democrats, harry reid said, look, it's just a pragmatic decision, can barely get 40 votes for an assault weapons ban, let alone 60. what happened? >> i'm ashamed to admit it, but it's politics and it's money. the national rifle association has taken this position. there's no reason, there's no foundation, there's no hunter that needs automatic military weapons to enjoy the culture of
obama and speaker of the house, john boehner, both in denial or are they drinking the same stuff? >> i think it's important to recognize is that we've already cut 2.5, 2.7 trillion dollars out of the deficit. if the sequester stays in you've got over 3 1/2 trillion dollars of deficit reduction already so we don't have an immediate crisis in terms of debt. in fact for the next ten years it's in sustainable place. >> we do not have an immediate debt crisis, but we all know we have one looming. >> greta: turns out a majority of americans disagree with the president and the speaker of the house. a new poll showing, a fox poll, that 68% of americans describe the national debt as an immediate problem. only 27% say the debt can be handled in the future. mayor, what do you think? the speaker and the president don't think it's an immediate problem? >> i think the american people are far better economists than the people in washington. the reality we do have a serious debt problem. it's been accumulating now for four or five years. under obama it's been accumulating at massive amounts and there'
with the latest on this one. good morning, devin. >> reporter: hey, good morning, john and diana. that's right. after that major meteor strike in russia last month, scientists want congress to take action so a similar disaster doesn't happen here. nasa chief charles bolden was on capitol hill yesterday. he said a small meteor that injured more than a thousand people in russia could have been detected, even deflected, if the right equipment was in place. he says the u.s. needs new outer space telescopes with infrared technology to track meteors because right now there's not much we can do. >> if you detected even a small one, like the one that they did in russia, headed for new york city in three weeks, what would we do? >> the answer to you is if it's coming in three weeks, pray. >> reporter: now, that meteor was only 55 feet long. experts say the chances of a major catastrophe from that is slim but are very real now. there are roughly 10,000 small meteors floating around within range of earth, all of those capable of destroying a major u.s. city. john and diana. >> whoa. scary stuff. all righ
goes on behind the scenes in meetings like this. ambassador john bolton is a former u.s. ambassador to the u.n. and a fox news contributor. general jack keane is also with us, a four-star retired general and former chief of staff of the u.s. army and a fox news military analyst. aaron david miller is a former advisor to six secretaries of state. he is also the author of, the much too promised land. aaron, let's start with you. this meeting has been written about, much-discussed in the united states. why now? why now for president obama to visit israel? >> oh, i think it is the intersection frankly of politics and policy. obama helped create his own israel problem and not that the prime minister of israel didn't air ba his fair share of the responsibility but the fact these two, probably with the exception of david ben guron and dwight d. eisenhower had most dysfunctional relationship between any american president and israeli prime minister. the president made a political calculation and he was vulnerable and exposed on this he had to take care of old business. too many people thoug
is overheard saying. a cnn exclusive. jake tapper sat down with the house speaker john boehner and specifically asked the speaker about what the president was overheard saying. >> president obama arrived in israel today, he had some interesting comments for prime minister netanyahu on the tarmac. he said it is good to get away from congress. netanyahu laughed and said, believe me, i know. any reaction? >> so much for the charm offensive. >> but does a comment like that have any impact, you think? >> no, not really. president is meeting with the president of israel, he's got his legislative issues, the president has got his. comes with the territory. >> comes with the territory. >> i would rather be heckled than ignored or as i like to say, you only tease the ones you love. >> takes the full interview with the speaker, coming up for our north american viewers with "the lead" at 4:00 p.m. eastern. a lot of us remember some of the tense moments during the first four years, especially that meeting they had in the oval office when the prime minister seemed to be lecturing the president. there was an
. that wraps up our second show ever. join us tomorrow at 4:00 p.m. eastern when house speaker john boehner will be our guest. wolf blitzer is standing by in "the situation room" and is happening now. take it away, wolf. >>> thanks very much, jake. and indeed, happening now. he's infuriated senator john mccain and has a plan to sabotage roe vs. wade and looks like he is planning for 2016 in a very, very serious way. senator rand paul is ambitious, certainly on the rise right now. my interview with the senator just ahead. >>> the world had a close call last month when a meteor exploded above russia. could the next one wipe out all of life on earth? what can we do if anything to stop it? >>> plus, was it something he said? a big city mayor in the middle of a big speech when he was violently interrupted. he'll join us to talk about what happened. brightest rising stars in the republican party. senator rand paul of kentucky is fresh off a first place finish at a presidential straw poll among influential conservatives and a show stopping filibuster in the united states senate. today he weighed i
time. good morning, everyone. welcome to "early start." i'm poppy harlow in for john berman. >> nice to have you. it is the first day of spring and it is 5:00 a.m. in the east. we begin with president obama. about to touchdown in tel aviv for start of a middle east visit. his plane lands in less than 90 minutes and his mission is taking on a new urgency at this hour. because there is mounting evidence syrian government has used chemical weapons on its own people near the city of oleppo. listen to this. >> i have a high probability to believe that chemical weapons were used. we need that final verification. we need to step up in the world community to prevent a humanitarian disaster. >> we're tapping into the global resources of cnn this morning to bring you the most complete coverage of the developing story. we have a reporter in jerusalem. ivan watson is in jordan and chris lawrence is live at the pentagon. sarah, how did the developments in syria affect the president's agenda on this trip? >> reporter: well, not much. this has been a major concern already for both the obama adminis
much to even go there? >> they are talking about it but i think it will be in john kerry's lap and he will be here saturday night. after going to jordan with the president we will double back to jerusalem, have dinner with netanyahu, have dinner with a couple of advisers on both sides, and they will try to move this along. it is a big stretch. my colleague, veteran journalist here, martin fletcher of nbc, says it is hard for them to come up with a new configuration. you have ynetanyahu out of a ne election. you have palestinian authority. so how you have negotiations and what the formula would be and israel surrounded byis lathe fund meantlism and war in syria, it just really is a very hard climb. but they said they are at least going to start. and i know that john kerry is very committed to this. >> andrea mitch they'll jerusalem. thanks so much, andrea. great information. >> my pleasure, thank you. >> with us now is a fellow from is a van center at middle east policy from brookings institution. as andrea just mentioned, israelis had an election of their own recently. prime minister

of congressional republicans, including house speaker john boehner went on twitter insisting obama should stop this outrage of liking sports. get off my lawn! it is march madness, republican style. the first day of spring, the annual opportunity for house republicans to turn over an old leaf they know they shouldn't turn over any more but they can't stop themselves. also clearly it is going to be gonzaga. that does it for us tonight. see you tomorrow night. right now, time for "the last word with lawrence o'donnell." have a great evening. >>> tonight, here in washington, we now know that when the president's away, republicans will play the same budget games they play when he's here. >> the united states of america stands with the state of israel. >> obama in israel for the first time as president. >> joking with israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu that it was good to get from congress. >> you only tease the ones you love. >> i see this visit as an opportunity. >> this trip is heavy on symbolism. >> what is he taking away. >> he and netanyahu had their differences. >> we know he was sort
and intelligence allies in the region not speaking has been a huge, huge problem. so, the president-- john kerry, when he went to archg raon his maten trip as secretary of state, talkedded to erdjuan, and the president when he got here at his very first meeting with netanyahied with brought it up, and has been working it we're told each time they met. so it was set up that they went to the airport. they had a trailer set up, and netanyahi and obama went in and the call was made. and we were all wondering-- it took something like half an hour. and we wondered why so long, why was the president there, why did he get on the phone. what we're told is both netanyahu and erdjuan required the president to be there, for each one that gave that leader cover to do this sort of forced public. erdogan could say president obama has explained that it's very, very important for to us at least cooperate on security intelligence. i need to do this for my friend barack obama, and netanyahu could make the same case for the people criticizing him at home for apologizing to erdogan. >> you mentioned syria. when the
john boehner and asked him about his reaction to president obama's comments. and this is what he had to say. >> president obama arrived in israel today. he had some interesting comments for prime minister netanyahu on the tarmac. he said "it's good to get away from congress." netanyahu laughed and said, believe me, i know. any reaction? >> so much for the charm offensive. >> does a comment like that actually have an impact, do you think? >> no, not really. you know, president's meeting with the president of israel, you know, he's got his legislative issues, the president's got his. comes with the territory. >> comes with the territory. >> i would rather be heckled than ignored. or as i like to say, you only tease the ones you love. >> wait, there's more. the full exclusive interview will be on "the lead with jake tapper" today 4:00 eastern time. >>> all right. president obama says the u.s. is israel's strongest ally and greatest friend. the president is on his first visit to the jewish state since taking office. among the tough issues he's discussing with israeli leaders the war in s
a prostitution scandal, bill clinton has never been more popular. on the other side, john edwards and larry craig, of course, of the infamous bathroom footsies. what do you think separates someone who can come back from someone who doesn't? >> i think if you look at a lot of people who have come back. bill clinton being perhaps the best example. someone who was able to sort of get back to focusing on substance and allow that sort of salacious conversation to become a side conversation. for someone like mark sanford, in order to have a big rebound, he's going to have to focus on things like his record as governor, things that make him popular from a policy perspective so that the conversation isn't just one about personality. >> is it mostly about that, do you think, chris? or is the key you've got to apologize and look somewhat sincere? you've got to get punished and seem to suffer. more than just, say, get your name recognition up by being mocked by leno and letterman. >> you can never underestimate the ability of the american people to forgive someone. that is a truism of politics. that being s
there is: impatience. [laughter] it reminds me of john f. kennedy's famous speech about putting a man on the moon, "we choose to go the moon not because it is easy-- but come on, it's got to be easy, right? let's just do it already. just strap a rocket to some guy's back. jeesh!" [laughter] [cheers and applause] be warned folks. this 501-day round-trip flyby is not for the faint of heart because there will be no showers, limits on toilet paper and clothing, drinking water made from the crew members' recycled urine and sweat and almost no privacy. in other words, basically a carnival cruise. [laughter] [cheers and applause] still -- still. being the first human to orbit the red planet is a memory you'll never forget, that is, until the radiation from the sun accelerates the onset of alzheimer's disease. [laughter] which explains neil armstrong's famous words, "that's one small step for man-- that's one small step for man." [laughter] fortunately, there is a plan to deal with the harmful radiation-- the astronauts will use a poop shield to block cosmic rays, where human waste could be s
was asass fated. he's friend of governor john hickenlooper. john hickenlooper said he signed this ban on high capacity weapons because it's a sticking point on the gun control debate. >> i think this ban on high capacity magazines is of that same ilk. it allows us to con tim contemplate someone who is bent on destruction just the seconds that it allows others to escape. >> michael: coloradoans were able to do what the united states senate was unable to do. dianne feinstein's ban did not pass on the floor vote because harry reid decided they were not going it to put it in their gun bill that they're going to put on the floor. it's an assaults weapons ban. over 200 weapons are still available to americans. but no, this was not good enough. the reason was because reid and other democratic senators were afraid of how it would play. max baucus of montana jon tester of montana. mark begich of ark heidi keitkamp and joe maughan. they're running scared. if they all band together and said you know what we're going to do this, they would be with the american people. it turns out this time they
points by the right wing against this president in very volatile times. give you an example. john baltan, the former u.n. ambassador, slammed president obama for being hostile towards israel. look at this. >> i think it's clear that president obama is the most hostile president that america has had since the formation of israel in 1948. >> the most hostile president since 1948 when israel was formed yet we find today, as jim just said, he and netanyahu have met ten times. the highest civilian award given to any civilian is going to be presented to him by perez, the president of israel. >> right. and this goes back to when president obama was running in 2008 and many on the right, from sarah palin on, characterized him as very close to a terrorist. it was all of this insid situation that he's really a muslim, lying about his muslim faith, because of the identity of his father, that he was from kenya, that he was a marxist, and that characterization is carried overall the way up until today. the right wing, for political expediency, constantly tries to portray this president. and by the wa
